|Old faucet, pink walls, "lovely" wallpaper border, cheap flooring|
Finally, I picked two colors (Ivory Mist #1 and Hazelnut Cream #2 from Behr) and dad and Jon painted the base coat (Ivory Mist) on the wall. We didn't have time to get the Hazelnut Cream stripe on before Cassidy made her way into the world, so the stripes will have to wait, but already, what a difference! The toilet got re-installed with the sink coming soon and Jon promised to pull them out again for my stripes when I'm back in a place where I can start painting. You can also see that the new laminate flooring (Highland Hickory from the HD) is in as well.
After putting in the toilet and sink again, Jon and Dad also put up the old mirror (yuck) but installed brand new "brushed nickel" accessories like a new faucet, towel rack and toilet paper holder.

Next step: Put the stripes on the wall, although that requires Jon to remove the toilet and sink again, so I have to let him forget how painful that is first before I can talk him into doing it again. In the meantime, I'll be looking for great art and a color scheme for this little sanctuary. Oh, and of course, replacing this....
